Do you use one Glock for everything?

I'm not asking if you only have one of Gaston's creations...

I'm asking if you have one that you use for all of your needs. I have a G19 that I have set up to my preferences that I use for everything. It is my daily carry, night stand gun, and would be what I grabbed if the SHTF. I would much rather of had it than my M9 when I was in the Army, and would gladly carry it as my duty if I was an LEO.

What about the rest of you?

Not really. G22 is home defense and on the rare occasion I open carry I go with that. G23 is the gun I carry concealed the most. G27 is for when the G23 is too big to conceal. Of the 3 the G22 is my favorite to shoot at the range. If I had to have one to do all those things I would go with the G23 though.

No, I have many Glocks, and each have a use. G26 for daily carry, G17 with light for night use, G19 when I want something a bit larger to carry. G17 get's use in 3 Gun match, another G17 is HD. Another G19 belongs to my wife.

Yes, without a doubt, my choice of a Glock 30SF and later the G30 Gen4 was made based on versatility to serve in a multitude of roles for EDC, competition and Quals, home defense, and formidable woods protection with some caliber conversions.

From the beginning, my gal and I elected to concentrate all our training on one each of the same model of sidearm for a variety of reasons, but cost wasn't the major consideration. It worked out well since neither of us collects pistols or revolvers.

I've written much more about the versatility of the G30 at the link in my signature line below.

I do.


The Glock 22 Gen 4 is my go-to gun and I carry it everywhere and use it for everything. I have many others handguns but I strongly prefer the G22. I've found it much easier to standardize on one pistol for everything. It also simplifies training and accessories/spare parts.

My Glock 27 is the end all be all, I have a Lone Wolf 9 mm barrel for range work, it's my open carry at work gun and my every day carry...

One Glock could do it all, but I like rotating them too much.

One Talo EXO gen 3 G27.
With six barrels in three lengths, finishes and calibers.
20 mags in four lengths and three calibers.
Small and large X-grip sleeves.

So I can grow or shrink the single gun into several configurations.
For a few years that gun filled multiple roles.

No - G22 with 22rd TLR1-HL for the night stand and HD and my G27 does everything else with a few 22rd sticks close by. MY XDs is becoming my favorite carry though.

Yup. Glock 26 for CCW, plinking, target shooting, GSSF competition, and home defense.

It's not my only firearm by any means, but it is my favorite go-to for almost everything.

I have a few glocks and some other pistols, but right now my glock 30 is doing it all for me.
It's on the nightstand, i carry it concealed, and with a dirt cheap lead handload it has been shooting nearly as good as a target pistol out to 25 yards.

Have a 19 (with AA.22 kit), 26, 23, and a 22 (with 9mm conversion barrel & mags). All have their purpose, all are used and carried occasionally, BUT the 19 is the "Go-To" Glock, the most often carried, the one fired in competitions, the one most often practiced with. That said, I am NOT giving any of them up.

if I only had one it would be the 23. that not being the case I mostly carry the 23. I have a 27 that I use for ankle carry in the hottest weather. my 30sf is the house gun and winter carry. I also have a 20sf for my woods gun. thats what I like about Glocks, they have a gun that fills all of my purposes well with the same triggers and manual of arms.

I could be happy with a G26 and a G34 as my only Glocks.

G21 serves as the nightstand gun equipped with a Surefire weapon light. EDC rotates between G26, G27, G19, & M&P Shield 9mm.
